hi guys, i’m a 16 year old girl and i suffer from GAD, Depression, and i’m almost positive that i have OCD. up until last friday, i was taking the highest dosage of zoloft and still not feeling anything. my doctor (whom id never been to prior to friday) sort of dismissed my request for a referral to a psychiatrist and instead put me on lexapro. i’ve never had any reactions to medication before, but this is significantly different. i’m painfully bloated at all times, have persistent dizziness, and nausea. i don’t know what to do
Nausea and Vomiting
How long have you been taking it? Meds can take a few weeks sometimes to settle but if you’re miserable call your doctor and tell them you want to stop taking it. Depending on how long you’ve been on it they might say just stop or you might need to taper down. Do you have to have a referral for your insurance? If not, just look online and find a psych near you yourself!!
I’ve been on it for only a few days now, i just thought it was a little strange and a bit concerning to already see side effects
It’s not unusual to see side effects that early in my experience but if you are super uncomfortable definitely call your doctor!!
